Make no mistake, there’s a lot involved in getting a mortgage loan. For a potential borrower, finding the right broker is paramount, so they can take care of the loan details, and you can concentrate on moving forward with your new investment. To help you prepare in your search for the right broker, here is an overview of the commercial loan mortgage process.
First, determine how much you can borrow. This includes a few different things, such as the amount of monthly payment that you can afford. Also, depending on your unique credit and employment history, income and debt, and goals, you can estimate how much a lender will loan you.
Second, you should try to pre-qualify for your loan. Your lender should spend time finding the right loan that fits you and your investment.
Be prepared to provide information about your loan request and investment. For example, if you are looking for an apartment loan, you will need to provide information or descriptions about borrower (you) and financial information, the financing request, location information, property information and issues, and tenant information.
When you apply for the loan, make sure your lender will assess and approve your loan quickly, so you are not left in the dark about your investment future. Your lender should specialize in commercial loans, instead of residential, so they are aware of your specific needs.
